Bowie Band loses a family member… Ryan Armstrong Custer

The Bowie Band is saddened to hear about the passing of Mr. Ryan Custer, Bowie Class of 2007 and 4-year member of the band program. Ryan was a saxophonist in the Bowie OPE and Wind Ensemble. Our deepest sympathies go out to his parents, Deanna and Brice Custer. Ryan’s talent and love of music will be missed in the Austin community.
